Monitor your Application with Seq
Seq and Serilog can be easily combined and when we keep in mind some of the important aspects of writing log messages, we can fully leverage the benefits of both tools. Today I will show you some features I find particularly helpful when working with Seq.   Making Queries Filtering your events in Seq is […] mehr
Anwendungsarchitektur mit JavaScript - mit Matthias Fischer

.NET User Group Bern Event

Montag, 15. September 2014 (18:00 bis 21:00 Uhr)

Anwendungsarchitektur mit JavaScript - mit Matthias Fischer

Dank der Zusammenarbeit mit der .NET User Group Zentralschweiz führen wir im September einen zweiten Vortrag zum Thema Anwendungsarchitektur mit JavaScript durch.


Inzwischen sind HTML5/JavaScript Anwendungen (App's) in ihrem Funktionsumfang und Ihrer Komplexität mit einer Desktopanwendung vergleichbar.

JavaScript wird nicht nur auf dem Client verwendet, sondern hält auch in der Server- und Desktopwelt Einzug. An diesem Abend wollen wir neben der Programmiersprache JavaScript und Ihrer Eigenheiten auch die Architektur einer in dieser Technologie entwickelten Anwendung zusammen mit den wichtigsten Frameworks betrachten.

How to Influence the Output of Serilog
Serilog is a great tool to write structured log messages. To fully profit from the structured part you need to write your log messages in a certain way. Otherwise you lose most of the great features and could use any other traditional logging framework. Luckily there are only a few simple things you should keep […] mehr
Our App "Myco" reached 100’000 downloads! Here are some statistics.

Myco is a project of Stefan and me. We published the Windows Phone App in December 2012, followed by the iOS version in May 2013 and the Android version in April 2014.

The app is available in a free edition and two paid editions (standard and pro) on each platform.

The app proved to be much more successful than I would have expected. Last month we reached 100’000 accumulated downloads of the App.

In the following I present some statistics about the downloads of Myco:


Note that the Windows Phone edition is available since 21 months, the iOS edition is available since 16 months and the Android is only available since 5 months.

For me it is interesting that Myco seems to break with some common myths of app development (at least when we look at the last 4 months):

  • Android is the most successful platform regarding total downloads and paid downloads, followed by Windows Phone. iOS is trailing behind, even though our main markets are Switzerland, Germany, Italy and France where the iPhone has quite a strong position.
  • Windows Phone is our most successful platform regarding conversion rate. Apparently the willingness to pay is even bigger with Windows Phone users than with iOS users.
  • The conversion rate of Android is not lagging far behind Windows Phone or iOS. The alleged “unwillingness to pay” of Android users does not prove to be that significant in our case.

Of course the above numbers and conclusions are still quite premature. Our app is highly seasonal. We had a high peak last autumn where iOS was dominating over Windows Phone (Android was not yet released). Therefore we are looking forward to the current mushroom season, which has just started.

Some explanations of the above observations might be:

  • The Windows Phone edition regularly gets recommended by Microsoft in their store (Myco for Windows Phone has won the “Microsoft Switzerland App Award 2013”).
  • The iOS edition has probably the bardes competition, since there are many good Mushroom Apps in the iTunes Store.

If you are now interested in Myco, you can download the app by following the links below:

Seq as a Sink for Serilog
As I explained in the last posts, log messages are not just strings but have an inner meaning. When we use Serilog to write structured log messages we make them explicit to query them later. The tool we want to use to search for a specific orderId should give us this capability without the need […] mehr
